what is the 'omega-verse' that every 3 or so prompts on the kinkmeme refers to?

This is an AU (alternate universe) request. I think - though I’m not positive - that the Alpha/Omega/Beta genders are based on a science fiction novel, but I haven’t read it, so I couldn’t tell you what it is. Basically, genders are all wonky. Within male and female there are two different genders, so there are alpha males and omega males and alpha females and omega females. Betas go into “heat” once a month, which attracts the alphas. Alphas bond with and subsequently impregnate the betas, and it seems like alphas are pretty predatory about it in general. Also, genitalia is apparently switched. Females have basically a penis, males have indoor plumbing, and they don’t know what “gender” they will be until they hit puberty. Each “gender” has a specific scent that’s really obvious to the “opposite” gender.

It’s a very specific kink, I can’t say I subscribe to it at all, but in the context of Sherlock, the trope is that one of them is an alpha, one is an omega, they shack up together, then bond/shag (predictably). A prompt of this type was filled here, if you’re into that: http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/11848.html?thread=60165960#t60165960
